adam arritola as a curator:
Adam Arritola (he/any) is a first generation Cuban-American born in 1995 in South Florida, where he had attended thousands of shows and became a very familiar face in the scene before migrating to build elsewhere.
He has been curating live creative experiences since 2012 with the sole intent to destroy cultural borders and to take people of all walks of life deeper into the wonderful, expansive, mysterious, spiritual world of the arts.
He is best known in recent years as the producer behind “The Perfect Trip: Miami Psych Fest“ (named the #1 event to attend Summer of 2018 in Miami by the Miami New Times) and more recently, the “Rochester Experimental Week” (his own take on the legendary International Noise Conference in Miami).
In 2015, he organized EO1: End of the World Party, and as a favor to a friend, inadvertently booked the first ever live performance of “MEMBERS ONLY”, whose main member, Xxxtentacion, later landed a #1 charting space on Billboard’s album charts..
adam arritola AS a creator:
Adam Arritola makes music, depending on what you consider music.
He has been exploring odd and non-musical sounds and avoiding traditionalism and academia within his music playing since he was a young child. He does not formally release music and prefers to play music live–often spontaneously and in public, open air settings. He has performed in many different contexts in cities spanning all over the entire East Coast of the United States, TN, TX, CO, CA, Montreal, Quebec, Portugal, Italy, Spain, France and Colombia and desires to play music in as many places as he can before decays.
